Darth Vader follows Deadpool and Wolverine with his own ‘Black, White & Red’ anthology

Darth Vader follows Carnage, Deadpool, and Wolverine with his own ‘Black, White & Red’ anthology series this April.

Press Release

Marvel Comics has announced a new anthology series in the same vein as Black, White, & Blood for Darth Vader called Star Wars: Darth Vader – Black, White & Blood. The title is toned down a bit using the word red instead of blood, but follows Wolverine, Carnage, Deadpool, Elektra, and Moon Knight.

The first issue will feature stories by Jason Aaron, Peach Momoko, and Torrun Grønbekk, with art by Momoko, Leonard Kirk, and more. Expect to find it in comic shops on April 26th.

Listen to the latest episode of our Star Wars podcast, Talkin' Tauntauns!

“‘All I am surrounded by is fear. And dead men.’ That moment from ‘Vader Down’ is still one of my favorite things I’ve written during my time at Marvel,” Aaron told StarWars.com. “I loved getting to let Darth Vader cut loose with all his power in such an epic way. And I couldn’t pass up the chance to revel in the dark side again and put Vader in an even more perilous situation… and then see how he carves his way out.”

So what’s Star Wars: Darth Vader – Black, White & Blood about?

The stories that await in STAR WARS: DARTH VADER – BLACK, WHITE & RED will be crafted by an all-star lineup of comics talent including Jason Aaron! The superstar New York Times bestselling writer who helped launch Marvel’s current Star Wars comics to great success in 2015 and penned some of Vader’s most iconic comic book moments along the way, returns to a galaxy far, far away! Aaron will team up with fellow Star Wars mastermind Leonard Kirk for a rousing saga that will span all four issues. The debut issue will also include a story written and drawn by visionary creator Peach Momoko in her first-ever interior work for a Star Wars comic and mark the Star Wars debut of acclaimed writer Torunn Grønbekk.

“This is a project we’ve been waiting to do for a while and we’ve got more amazing talent lined up that I can’t wait to announce,” Editor Mark Paniccia said. “It’s such a thrill to use this unique storytelling approach on one of the greatest villains in the galaxy.”
